volatile this week with concerns the american economy is getting weaker. the latest reports are manufacturing, consumer spending and hiring by private companies and they're below levels that signal a healthy situation. in new york, ashley webster, fox 5 news. >> to help us better understand what is fueling the downward spiral, anderson wazne is here with us. thank you for being with us. >> good to be here. >> in your opinion, what is behind today's plunge? >> we think today's plunge is simply a reaction on the ongoing political situation that has been going on for a couple of weeks. we sent out a letter earlier this week to our clients to let them know that they needed to expect volatility. the politicians had to push the debt crisis to the very end in order to be able to get political cover to come out and say i had no choice but to vote for it and now everyone's complaining about it. as a result of them complaining about it, everyone's focussing on the bad news and taking their eye off of the ball.
>> if the marks were going to react -- markets were going to react to the debt crisis, wouldn't that have happened earlier this week? markets will react when they're ready to react. the volatility shows up when it does and we have to be prepared for that bumpy road. >> what about the current situation overseas? in europe -- in europe. could this all be coming together in a perfect storm? there is a possibility that the headlines are driving it, but in terps of looking at it as an investment opportunity, this is not something that is not known. everyone's aware that europe has had problems, but this is not a surprise and the fact that it's culminating in this volatility, is that it's culminating in this volatility. >> and the jobs report expected tomorrow, today's performance on wall street is not setting us up for a good day tomorrow, wouldn't you agree? certainly the jobs report is going to be something everyone is looking at and the volatility is likely to continue. now is the opportunity to look
at your portfolio and to make sure you rebalance properly. now is not the time to make any radical changes. >> also, today's selloff, is that just fueled by fear in is it just people looking at twitter and reacting to the headlines and knee-jerk reaction and making the decisions based on fear in. i am sure some is fear and there is probably a certain amount of margin calls that have come in where people didn't have a choice but to sell because the margins came to. >> and there has been a lot of talk and fear about double-dip recession. you think we're headed toward that? we may have a recession but right now, the indicators are that we are continueing to grow. we're not in a recession at this point. we're not showing signs indicating we're heading to a recession. and we're growing at a pace weaker than we like but we're growing. >> i will look to so what happens tomorrow. thank you for being with us

agents on the field and it was a good plan and didn't quite work out, at least not in the beginning. it had all of the best intentions. here was the scenario, the skins practice did start after 4 and 16 players acquired via free agency could not take the field because the collective bargaining agreement was in the final stages of being ratified. the nfl calendar did officially begin and free agents were allowed to finally start doing drills and take the field. the redskins free agent catch is cofield, a defensive tackle who signed a six-year, $36 million deal with 12.5 of that guaranteed. and that is -- he's expected to -- what do you have? >> i am going to leave all in the field. i will have players with a lot of energy and a high character guy. and that is the biggest thing i want to get across the fans here in the d.c. area. and i think on game day, the

by -- been cases of a mother and a child by suicide and there is a deep, dark depression and because of the illness, feels like there are fewer and fewer options. as that happens, it's the kind of chronic condition and an additional stressor emerges and the fuse on that time bomb is lit. and apparently that is what happened here. the child was refused admission to a school and that was the precipitating event, apparently. >> is it possible she was pushed to the limit with everything going? that is what sometimes happens. the mother's trying to do what she can to fix things but they don't see clearly when they're deeply depressed like this, and so using the resources more fully, getting help herself if she's feeling overwhelmed -- these are all things when you're in a deep, dark place, you don't see these obligations. >> uh-huh. >> this is what happened in
these this case. >> and what can a family member do? is the a feature, something someone's going through in. >> and there are things we can look for when people are overwhelmed. you will hear in the discussions and the dialogue with others, there will be themes that they feel helpless, there will be themes that they feel powerless to make charges, that they believe there are not many obligations, that they feel very bad about leaving a child potentially open to social pressures, were the child not to be taken care of by then and you begin to here the theme as being in a home. when you hear something like that, take action. the county does have services that people can take victim of. >> and do you call the county? do you call a mental health professional or talk to the person? >> all of the above. do all you can and bring other people in.
sometimes people are afraid if they open this discussion with the person that it will be the precip tant on. on the contrary. it usually makes them feel less isolated and it's their isolation that makes them believe there is no alternatives. seeking them directly and getting services from the county, the government is there and the county government will provide some help and going to those services and talking to the family members, they're good concrete steps to take. >> a sad situation, thank you for coming in tonight and that is shedding light on trying to make sense of this. thank you. we'll be right back.
